|A Rebuttle to ''A Date with Your Family''|
This is a rebuttle to both ''A Date with Your Family'', a movie usually seen as "an accurate account of 50's culture", and is also a rebuttle to the reviews who take it seriously. I hope that this video proves that ''A Date with Your Family'' is NOT an accurate example of 1950's culture, nor does it reveal "the horrible truth" of the decade.

|1957 NBC-TV Promo for their Saturday Prime-Time Line-Up|
A promo for NBC's Saturday Prime-Time line-up, circa sometime in 1957. The promo promotes the following shows: "The Perry Como Show", "The George Gobel Show" and a one-off TV special called "Five Stars for Springtime". These may have been live, which I presume is why it uses promotional stills to promote the shows.
